Another myth exploded by Hall had

Hall who has been experimenting
with these in.sects some 20 years, said,

As parting advice Hall told the
class: "If you are teaching on the
ground floor, be sure that the cur

will look in and get queer ideas.
"I was running a fire house class
cne night" he went on, "and the men
had rounded up some kids as pa

Harper set up and 6tarted to get
out of bed. "My God, you surely
wouldn't shoot a man helpless in

For answer, Ballew placed the
weapon against Harper's head and
began firing. The barrel was so close
that the wounds were were powder

Finally satisfied, he left and went
to the home of Arp.
"I want you to take me to Blue
Ridge to see the Law" he told Arp.
He refused to explain why, declaring
I'll tell you after we get there."
At the jail, they found the sheriff
